I was born in Japan, but travelled extensively before choosing to make Vancouver my home.
I studied at the Canadian College of Shiatsu Therapy and graduated in 2007. After being given a book about Tao Shiatsu from a friend, I was inspired to further my learning by studying with Endo Sensei in Kyoto. When I returned to Canada, I continued studying Tao Shiatsu in Montreal and Toronto. The path of the Tao is a life-long committment to learning, and am currently furthering my studies in Level II.
I am a registered Shiatsupractor in British Columbia with the Canadian Shiatsu Society of BC, and as a Tao Shiatsu Level I Practioner with the International Tao Shiatsu Society.
As a Tao Shiatsu Therapist, I am committed to my patients and my practice, continuing my studies, and offering treatments to an international clientele in Vancouver and Japan.
